1,000 New Glogs in Glogpedia – See our Top Picks!

top_picks

As part of our ongoing dedication to making Glogpedia a complete cross-curricular learning resource, and in response to your own sterling creative efforts over the last month, we have been working hard to add another 1,000 top quality resources to Glogpedia. We can now proudly announce that the library has been updated with 1,000 of the most informative, attractive and engaging glogs created by users like you around the world, so whether you’re looking for some inspiration for your own glog projects, or seeking out an engaging way to introduce a subject to your class, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve had great fun reviewing all the glogs that have been created and nominated over the last month, and we were especially impressed by the many different creative uses you found for our recently introduced educational graphics and templates – we gave you the tools, and you have truly created masterpieces, both online and via the Glogster App for iPad. That’s why we’ve chosen five of our favourite glogs from this month’s new arrivals to share with you here, hopefully planting some seeds of inspiration, ready to bloom into brilliant glogs. Who knows, maybe you could be featured in our next 1,000 Glogpedia resources!

data

This amazing glog for young learners teaches the very basics of collecting and presenting data. The board game style glog encompasses two lessons, full of songs, videos, activities to complete together or individually, and even links to online games in which young learners can practice their new skills! With a well-designed glog like this, students will be too busy exploring to even notice that they’re learning math skills as they go.

Mummy

Learners of all ages will love this gruesome glog detailing how to make a mummy. While we wouldn’t recommend trying to follow these instructions at home or in your classroom, the glog’s fun illustrations and easy-to-follow presentation will transport students to Ancient Egypt, pointing out some very memorable differences between their cultural practices and our own!

catalina

Our biology graphics are in their natural habitat here, in a beautiful glog about the ecosystem of Catalina Island. Fascinating facts and figures are nestled amongst beautiful and relevant illustrations, giving a real feel for Catalina and its animal inhabitants. This is a great example of a glog that could be quickly put together while on a field trip, using the iPad app to create a lasting impression of a learning experience.

cabbage copy

Meanwhile back in the lab, this striking report makes brilliant use of our Experimental template, packing it with images, information, and even charts and tables to make sure readers understand every step of this experiment on the best conditions for growing squash and cabbage plants. Whatever your students are experimenting on this year, this glog is a great example of how to present their work in accordance with the scientific method.

bridge

Think civil engineering is too complicated or unexciting? Think again with this informative glog covering the principles of contraction and expansion in the building trade, as well as some fascinating facts about suspension bridges. While the glog contains videos to discuss the physics of building on an atomic level, the beautiful and detailed photographs that dominate the glog show us the bigger picture of how these scientific laws impact the structures around us.


If you like what you see here, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve got a whole lot more top quality content in our Glogpedia library, now home to over 11,000 glogs. We hope you enjoy exploring, and that you will join us in making Glogpedia even bigger and better by creating top-quality glogs and nominating your favourites to be a part of our continually growing library.
